Grenade attack in tiny Djibouti, home to many militaries, is condemned; 3 reported killed

The European Union Naval Force and the African Union on Sunday both condemned a grenade attack in the tiny East African nation of Djibouti that is reported to have killed three people.

The attack happened Saturday night when a grenade blast detonated in a busy restaurant. The port city of Djibouti is used as a base by several militaries including the U.S., which has its only permanent base in Africa in Djibouti.

The Djiboutian news agency ADI said three people died and 15 were wounded.

Djibouti contributes troops to the African Union military force fighting militants in Somalia. Al-Shabab fighters have previously carried out attacks in Uganda and Kenya, which also contribute troops.

Spain's Defense Ministry said three of its military personnel were wounded in the 8 p.m. attack.
